FilmTec™ XLE-440

Spiral-wound element with polyamide thin-film composite membrane


General Information

  • Permeate flow and salt (NaCl) rejection based on the following standard test conditions: 2,000 ppm NaCl, 125 psi (8.6 bar), 77°F (25°C), pH 8, 15% recovery.
  • Flow rates for individual elements may vary but will be no more than +15%.
  • Stabilized salt rejection is generally achieved within 24-48 hours of continuous use; depending upon feedwater characteristics and operating conditions.
